"Mythapedia": Presentation by Jason Scott at the STM (Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers) Innovations Seminar at Hilton London Kensington, London, England. After a biographical introduction to the speaker's love of information and archiving that led to the textfiles.com website, this speech covers Wikipedia and a number of myths as to its efficiency, dependency and usefulness. Topics include Wikipedia versus Casinos, the role of the Content Defender, and why Speed trumps all else in the Quick Wiki World.

Lacks profanity, is somewhat geared for a European audience, and contains a slight distortion on the voice in some parts.

Jason Scott runs TEXTFILES.COM and has made a number of essays and statements regarding Wikipedia at his weblog, ascii.textfiles.com.

David Gerard:

You are a misinformed, malicious, half witted idiot on an egotrip, just like the rest of your kind on that god awful site wikipedia.

'Jason Scott' is a reputable decent person, and he doesn't run 'sock puppets'.

And you couldn't detect an 'open proxy' if it the directions were printed on the back of your masturbatory bottle of hand lotion.

please consult [wp:get_a_life]

Subject: Not quite true, Mr. Gerard.
Nobody has ever run sockpuppets or anything else from the TEXTFILES.COM server; there's no accounts on it. (textfiles.org is a spam site, last I checked). Interesting side-step of the content of the talk, however. Good for checking open minds.

Subject: On Jason Scott and Wikipedia
I fear I must admit I am somewhat down on Mr Scott's
opinions of Wikipedia, considering how he and his dear friend RaDMan ran an incredible number of sockpuppets from textfiles.org trying to fuck things up, and I got to ban them as new ones popped up. Good for detecting open proxies, though. That is, he's tried a bit hard to directly fuck things up to take his opinions on Wikipedia too closely to heart.
